My graduation project about the beauty of poetry and its place in modern society. Each sculpture represents a Dutch poem about death, each with it's own view on the subject. Through these sculptures I show the public that poetry does not follow it's stereotype and that it can be very useful in expressing emotions and thoughts where direct words might be too harsh. By taking the subject of death, something we all relate to, I further prove this point by visualizing the beauty of each piece.
Each sculpture is made from acrylic resin, acrylic paints, sculpey, natural elements such as wood and various miniatures. All hand painted and hand poured.
Moodboards for both the subject and sculptures.
The last design sketches made for ''The journey'' (first image) and ''The silence'' (second image).
